Green Chiles and Some Other Stuff

The food in Santa Fe was great. Unfortunately I only broke out the camera for one meal, although it ended up being one of the best meals of the whole trip. Most of the time I just forgot to bring it with me, then a couple of times I felt too scared to take pictures of my food. Finally, though, I just said "screw it" and went to get the camera. My friend was mortified, but I told him that we would never see any of these people again so who cared?

On the last day of the trip we ate at a place called Tortilla Flats, and I thought it was outstanding. Apparently a lot of other people agreed because it was very crowded that Sunday morning.

Now for some food porn:

These are the blue corn chips and salsa. The waitress told us that it would be a few minutes because they had to cook the chips (not sure exactly what that means). They arrived warm and non-greasy. We ate every last one. The salsa was pretty good too.

This is my friend's breakfast burrito with red chile. He loves green chiles as much as me, but he wanted to try the red and see how it was. He said the red was good, but the green was better.

This is my breakfast burrito with green chile. That's a piece of egg there on the side, I guess it fell out of the burrito. The burrito had egg, chorizo, and hash browns. The tortilla appeared to be handmade. It. was. awesome.

For dessert we ordered sopapillas. It took forever to get them, but when she brought them out there were two extra ones to make up for it. They seemed to have been freshly made and were still warm. Pillowy goodness with honey on top!

Amongst the other food I had was chile verde con machaca (green chile with shredded beef), tamales smothered in green chile, tomatoes, onions, and lettuce, an adobada burrito, a carne asada taco, a shredded chicken burrito with green chile, blue corn enchiladas covered with (what else) green chiles, and red chile posole.

In other news, I am heading to Austin this afternoon to see my favorite band in concert tonight - Ween!! They are playing at Stubb's. Then I get to see them again on Saturday night in Dallas. It's just a full-time party around here.

The breakfast burritos look giantastically amazing. Chorizo, egg, chile and cheese on top? Sounds like heaven. The Northeast has no decent Mexican or Southwestern food. It is so depressing.

Stubbs is a neat little venue! Have so much fun. Hope it's not too hot there tonight. Are you going to eat there as well?
